USA & INDIA: e-con Systems Inc. announced the launch of the world’s first UVC compliant USB 3.0 camera as part of its new See3CAM series.
Being UVC compliant means that See3CAM cameras are ‘plug and play’ on Windows and Linux - no additional device driver software is required and the cameras work with standard Windows (DirectShow) and Linux (V4L2) software.
The new simple and cost-effective See3CAM series solves the problem of implementing high resolution, high quality video and image capture in applications such as barcode detection on moving objects and object tracking – these are applications where the cost and complexity of currently available hardware and software has, until now, been prohibitive.
e-con Systems is a leading embedded product design services company specializing in the development of advanced camera solutions and the new See3CAM USB 3.0 SuperSpeed cameras complement its existing range of camera solutions for embedded and USB2.0 platforms.
The first product in the See3CAM family is the See3CAM_10CUG, a 1.3 MP global shutter camera. Available in monochrome and color versions, the See3CAM_10CUG works with both USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 hosts. The camera’s USB 3.0 SuperSpeed connectivity enables it to capture images at 720p(HD) @60fps and 1280x960(Full Resolution) @45fps.
The monochrome version of the See3CAM_10CUG is targeted at entry-level machine vision, 1D/2D barcode detection, object detection/recognition and other high-speed image capture applications. With an external trigger input, the camera can be used in a variety of industrial automation and scientific applications.
